Tatneft Develops Multifunctional Modular Measurement System

April 16, 2012
A multifunctional modular measurement system (MBIS) has been developed at the Company to increase the effectiveness of developing small deposits of OAO TATNEFT through arranging control measurements of commercial oil production from the wellhead to the commercial oil transportation point.

MBIS made by professionals of TATNEFT is of modular and portable design. The principle of its operation is based on the direct method of dynamic measurements of the gross mass of crude oil through mass flow meters.

With relative simplicity of the conceptual design and taking into account the respective characteristics this system is unique and there are no similar designs available in Russia.

The universal unit can be applied at any stage of production, transportation, treatment and delivery of the produced liquid. The main parameters of the universal unit are: flow range from 1.2 to 6,000 tons per day, liquid viscosity of 3 to 5000 cSt (at 200C), volume fraction of water from 0 to 99%, flow of associated petroleum gas from 24 to 2760 m3/day. The main advantage of this system is the ability to work in three modes: measuring the stock-tank oil (SIKN), measurement of crude oil (SIKNS) and measurement of crude oil containing free petroleum gas (IU).
